February 19 Moving Day (Day 145)

Last night was magical. The water was calm and reflected the lights of the small settlement across the harbour as well as the lights of Highcliff road on the spine of the Otago peninsula.

Our last night near Dunedin.

We packed up the last of our gear this morning and headed north to Mt. Somers, a 4 day stop before our final month stay on the west coast. On the way we drove along the east coast stopping at several viewpoints to see sealions or beautiful beaches. One stop was to see the famous Moeraki Boulders, huge spheres on a beach, some partially covered by sand and some just emerging from the sandy banks. There are several theories of their origin, but I like to think of them as ‘marbles of the gods’!
